Fishing Report, Sept. 6

■ LAKE MEAD – Striper action has picked up in the Temple Bar area, with anglers finding success while throwing Sassy Shads and other shad imitations. Top-water action has been picking up along with the number of striper boils. One guide reportedly caught 83 stripers in one morning while fishing the Boulder Basin with shad imitators.

■ LAKE MOHAVE – Channel catfish and largemouth bass continue to comprise the bulk of the catch, but the striper action has picked up this week with up to 3-pound fish taking anchovies.

■ WILLOW BEACH – Anglers are finding good action for large stripers. The fish are biting AC Plugs and other trout-imitating swim baits. Three fish weighing in at 16, 17 and almost 28 pounds came in during the past week. Rainbow trout continue to hit small spinners and other traditional trout baits following the weekly Friday plants.

■ URBAN PONDS – Fishing for catfish picked up following the Aug. 22 plants. Bluegill action is sporadic, but anglers using night crawlers and mealworms have found success. The limit is three game fish regardless of species.

■ KIRCH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA – Area reservoirs continue to produce largemouth bass, but trout anglers have been few in number. With temperatures dropping, rainbow trout fishing should pick up over the next few weeks.

■ EAGLE VALLEY RESERVOIR – Fishing this past week has been good for rainbow and tiger trout. Anglers have found that night crawlers combined with mini-marshmallows or PowerBait will catch the fish.

Chartreuse spinners have been taking largemouth bass, while trout have been biting night crawlers with mini-marshmallows and PowerBait with glitter in a variety of colors.
